Internal Limiting membrane removal has been confronted by 2 obstacles for several years. These obstacles are circumvented nowadays by:

Minimising the surgical trauma induced to the neurosensorial tissue, and the certainty to have removed the complete limiting membrane, from the papilla to the temporal raphe, and going until the vascular arcades.

The use of a dye that was shown to be non-toxic allows a controllable, complete and non-traumatic surgery.
